An explanation for why Chelsea will not be wearing a gold badge in the Premier League for the remainder of 2021/22 despite their Club World Cup win has been provided.
Chelsea were in action on Saturday evening. The Blues were taking on Brazilian outfit Palmeiras in the final of the 2022 Club World Cup.
After failing to lift the trophy back in 2012, Chelsea will have no doubt been desperate to clinch it this time around as it is the only trophy their club has not been able to win.
And, when all was said and done in the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium, Chelsea were able to come out 2-1 winners.
Chelsea took the lead in the tie after 54 minutes through Romelu Lukaku. However, their lead did not last long, with Raphael Veiga levelling things up from the spot 10 minutes later.
There was then no second goal in normal time, with Kai Havertz then scoring the winner for Chelsea after 117 minutes of action from 12 yards.
Why Chelsea will not wear gold badge in Premier League
After winning the CWC, Chelsea have earned the right to wear a gold badge on their shirts for the first time.
However, as explained by football.london, the emblem will not appear in Premier League games as a change to kits in mid-season is against regulations.
Chelsea will, however, display it in the Champions League round of 16 game against Lille when they face off later this month.
